“Is there any thing whereof it may be said, see, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.”

A wise king once said that millennia go. Thirty five hundred years ago.

We’re taught that the world we’re living in now is the most technologically advanced age the world has ever seen. We’re taught we “evolved” from lower life forms. That billions of years ago our ancient ancestors started off as single cell creatures in the primordial sea. That over the course of years.. millions and billions of years, we advanced from one species to another. Then to another. Then to another.. and eventually, we’ve evolved into what we are now, homo sapiens.

To lay the supporting foundation for this school of thought, you’d naturally think if we are the most advanced we’d ever been, we’d find a progression of advancements in our historic record. Perhaps as we evolved from having legs to arms, we’d find basic tools our newly acquired arms could use. We’d expect to find primitive buildings constructed of stacked stones, remains of wooden support huts, maybe even a few crude buildings as we learned to congregate in clans.

But is that all we find?
